Bug Description

When attempting to go to a command-line prompt in Lubuntu 11.10 (with Ctrl-Alt-F*), nothing materialises-a rapidly blinking prompt appears, and no tty login appears either. I own a GeForce FX5200 with the 196 driver. See this thread: for details.

I have to use vtysh from the console instead of Ctrl-Alt-F(1..6), it seems to be an X problem, as once I use vtysh 1 and switch to tty1, they work as expected.

I have the same problem under a brand-new Mageia 3 install,
